video question results (Data Analytics)


Badge +1

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anyone knew and could enlighten me. During the course videos we sometimes receive questions. I did a multiple choice (select all that applied. I selected 3 of the 4 options. the 3 i selected all said correct the one i did not said nothing. does this mean it was incorrect and I should have selected it or if I did select it and shouldn't have would it have said incorrect? 

Just curious.

Thanks

Hi @Maplesaurus

I think you are talking about in-video quizzes (the ones which appear within the videos.

Usually what happens is that, if you select some of the correct answers and don’t select some other correct answer (as in your case), it gives a message (in a grey colored box) at the bottom of that quiz box (scroll down if you can’t see it) that you have not selected all correct options. Does this message appear?

Also, if all the correct answers are selected, the you will see a “Continue” button. “Retry” only comes when you have incorrect answer(s). So you can take that as an indicator.

And of course, wrong answers will be marked in red and correct answers in green.

Sometimes, how these messages will be displayed (both for in-video quizzes or actual quizzes) depends upon the ones who created the course. And there might be technical problems as well that are causing errors.

I really appreciate your curiosity! Hope this information helped :)

Regards.

It did. It looks like I must have answered them all correctly because I moved right along.

Thank you for your reply

This is a noticeable point. Take it into account.

@ATP Thank you for your reply. Upon moving a little further it would appear that @Archisha Bhar was correct. For the Data Analytics Course If the question should have been checked there will be a grey box at the bottom of the results stating something along the lines of “not all correct answers were selected”. If an answer was not selected and did not need to be it will stay blank (no correct or incorrect marking) on the results screen. 
 

thank you both again for your replies.

That’s correct, @Maplesaurus. All you need to do is scroll down if you don’t see the grey box. :slight_smile:

By the informations you provide, we could assume it is a bug and you may flag it if you want.

If you have verified that your answer was incomplete, but you can go on as well, that really makes no sense for the purpose of the in-lecture quizzes, especially if we’re dealing on a technical subject. 

Thanks for appreciating too.

Not quite that it wasn’t flagged as incomplete I just think they should tag a question that was correctly left I selected as correct. I feel this would make things clearer for the student.

Ok read me. I said, if you think it’s a mistake in the course --as I guess it is-- you can flag it (= REPORT IT) using the button Report a technical issue. If you think it’s worthy of :)
